When the iPhone launches in June of this year, there will be dozens of accessories available from a variety of companies. I’ve been thinking about the different type of accessories you could create for the iPhone, and have composed this list (complete with mock-ups) of 5 that I think are must-haves.
|Mobile Charger (Battery Back-up)
With only 5 hours of talk/video playback time, the iPhone isn’t going to make it on a long trip or flight.This mobile charger would recharge your iPhone on the plane, in your car, or in your hand, and give you another 5 hours of talk/video playback time before you need to dock or plug into the wall.
|Bluetooth Earbuds + headset
Bluetooth Earbuds would be awesome…but I don’t think you could just have Earbuds by themselves, because they would be so small, you’d be sure to lose at least one of them.
I like the headset that we’ve seen on the iPhone official site, but I’d like to see a small cord go from it to another earbud so you could be fully immersed in your music.
Again, addressing the battery issue. I watch and listen to podcasts all day when I’m at work, and 5 hours just isn’t going to cut it. With a horizontal dock the iPhone could be charging while I’m watching movies, TV or podcasts in the “widescreen” mode.
We’re going to have to do something about keeping that screen safe, and I’m not exactly sure how they’re going to make cases for the iPhone that do that, since you have to touch the screen with your finger to make it work. So, when thinking about this, I looked at my favorite iPod case, Griffin’s Centerstage, and decided it might work to use the same flip-style design, but increase it’s size to allow the flip portion to flip all the way around to the back.
Ok, now stick with me on this…it gets cold during the winter…and I don’t know about you, but I want to wear gloves when it’s cold. The problem is that the iPhone only responds to the touch of your finger. You can’t use your fingernail, so I’m assuming that a gloved hand won’t work either (if I’m wrong I’m sure the comments below will correct me)…with that in mind, I want a pair of gloves with a small hole in the pointer finger so that the phone will work, and you’ll still be able to keep your hands mostly warm.
So…what do you think? Agree? Disagree? Leave your comments below to let me know how stupid I am…
